by | VIEW 190
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft reveals he would absolutely love to see Tom Brady sign a one-day retirement contract with the Patriots. Brady, 45, announced his retirement from football on Wednesday. After spending his first 20 seasons with the Patriots, Brady played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his last three seasons.
During his time with the Patriots, Brady won six Super Bowl rings. “I’d do it tomorrow. Not only do I want it, our fans are clamoring for it and to us, he always has been and always will be a Patriot. We’ll do everything we can in our power to bring him back, sign off as a Patriot and find ways to honor him for many years to come.
He did so much to bring life and good cheer to our community and he’s a beloved figure and he’s earned the respect and love that people feel for him like no other athlete in our town and we’ve had some great ones," Kraft said on CNN, per the Patriots website.
Kraft wants to sign Brady to a one-day retirement contract
On February 01, 2022, Brady announced his retirement from the NFL after 22 seasons. But 40 days later, Brady announced he was returning for his 23rd season. On February 01, 2023, Brady announced his second retirement.
But this time, Brady noted he is "retired for good." "Good morning guys. I'll get to the point right away. I'm retiring for good. I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I'd just press record and let you guys know first," Brady said in his retirement announcement.
During his time with the Buccaneers, Brady won one Super Bowl and had one divisional round and one wild-card round appearance. There is no doubt that Brady enjoyed his best playing days in New England and it remains to be seen if he does decide to sign a one-day retirement contract with the Patriots.
